>> well, let's see. maybe the "blade" franchise. [ cheers and applause ] "white men can't jump." that was a good one. i think "major league" comes into the picture. >> seth: when the "twilight" films were as big as they were, did you ever wish that "blade" could find his way into those films? [ laughter ] >> some people ask that question. >> seth: yeah, yeah. i feel like i would have been more drawn to them, if there was just a little bit more blade. >> it'd be a different story if blade was in the movie.

[ applause ] >> seth: now i heard, is it true that john had a dog on the set that was an unpopular dog? >> john had a schizophrenic dog on the set. [ light laughter ] it was a dog that every time we come -- it was like a lost dog. and a stray dog. and he picked it up and took it in. and every time we would come to the set, we walked into the make-up trailer and john would have the dog with him. and the dog would, like, bark at everybody who came into the make-up trailer. so people got a little tired of that, you know.
and one thing led to another. and we ended up making a bet something was going to happen between -- the bet was between john and i. john loses the bet. he doesn't want to pay up. so somehow or another in the process of him not paying up, his dog got kidnapped. [ laughter ] and when his dog got kidnapped, i didn't know how that happened. i couldn't believe it. i was just -- [ laughter ] oh, my lord. i can't believe -- >> seth: very trying time for you. >> very trying time for me. and i felt traumatic about the whole situation. and then when he finally paid, that's when suddenly his dog appeared again.
